Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will no longer be Manchester United manager at the start of 2020, former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has told talkSPORT.

Solskjaer has found himself under increased pressure following a disastrous run of just two Premier League wins this season and no away victory since early March.

The Red Devils face a crunch clash with Newcastle on Saturday that would be a true embarrassment to lose, as the Magpies are second bottom in the top flight and have only scored four goals all season.

Is time running out for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer?

There are numerous issues at Old Trafford right now, with Solskjaer unable to get his side firing in the offensive department, while United’s midfield is well below par and the defence is not exactly doing brilliantly.

A number of supporters phoned talkSPORT after Thursday evening’s draw with AZ Alkmaar to rant at the Red Devils – with one even calling for Solskjaer to be sacked and replaced by Roy Keane!

And Cundy, co-hosting the Sports Bar with Man United supporter Andy Goldstein, predicted Solskjaer will be axed before New Year’s Day.

“I will make a statement here,” said Cundy. “There is no way he will be manager of Manchester United on January 1.

“And it’s not his fault.”

Discussing United’s problems during another portion of the show, Cundy slammed the quality of United’s squad and said the Old Trafford outfit are going to keep falling further and further back until they ‘turn into Everton’ – a solid Premier League team with only distant hopes of breaking into the top six.

He continued: “If you did a scratch team from Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City’s second XIs, you could make a squad better than Man United’s first XI.

“Phil Foden absolutely walks into that team. Eric Dier, who can’t get into Spurs’ first XI, absolutely strolls in. [Oliveri] Giroud at Chelsea starts up front.

“It’s like they are staring into an abyss.
